It is time to rock Southern-fried country style this Christmas season. Sanctuary Records, the home of many great bands from the metal and progressive genres, is the host for those wild-eyed southern boys full of Christmas cheer.

Just look at the players on this disc! How could you possibly not enjoy this if you like southern rock? It is like a musical Super Bowl. By god, even if you were the Grinch or Ebenezer Scrooge you would crack a smile listening to this fantastic music!

"Run, Run, Rudolph" courtesy of Lynyrd Skynyrd and "Rock and Roll Christmas" by George Thorogood are my favorites. They rock the house down and leave those Christmas balls hanging on the tree jingling long after the CD stops spinning.

I have to say that the entire CD is just a gas, a real lot of fun. I played it for someone that does not even enjoy rock music and you know what? They loved it. So there ya go; it's universal in spirit, my friends and so is this music. Do not miss this one.
